The Roots, McDowell Mountain Music Festival, 3/23/13

The Roots @ McDowell Mountain Music Festival at Margret T. Hance Park|3/23/13
About an hour into their dominating set, the legendary Roots crew pulled out a trick few other bands could get away with: Drummer Questlove and percussionist Frank Knuckles did a drum solo. An extended one. It's always been my opinion that nothing kills the mood of a live show quicker than a drum solo (no offense to you "Moby Dick" fans out there), but The Roots mostly got away with it.
